I received my Ph.D. at Peking University in 2022 with a thesis on the meaning and structure of biased polar questions in Mandarin Chinese. My research centers on semantics, pragmatics, and their interfaces with other sub-areas of linguistics. I am currently working on non-canonical questions and related issues such as response particles, question-embedding predicates, and speaker-oriented adverbs.

Here is my full CV.
